  1. Ok so I have been looking into sundown subwoofers...... I wanted a sub that can play down to 25 hz and be able to still go to the spl competitions when I choose to my vehicle tuning is around 41hz. Here are my options ( I want to stay with dual 2 ohm config. and power is not an issue) -Sundown Zv.4 15 x 2 -Sundown NS v.3 15 x 2 -Team sundown 15 x 2 I also saw that sundown offers spl cones.... different pole sleeve variations and also different coil size options! Current set-up is a 7cuft after all displacements port only because subs will be inverted no matter what..... -Tuning is sitting at around 34hz +/- 1hz Let me know some of my options * Thanks guys....
  2. Currently built an enclosure for my sundown x-12 d4, running off a p1000.1bd. The box dimensions are 36wide, 13height, 13depth. Am using a 4 inch aeroport tuned to 30 hz. I usually listen to low 30's. But I feel like the box could be louder in general. What do y'all suggest I do to make it perform better? I'm a noob in enclosures so bare with me
  3. Voltage dropping to 12.8 at full tilt with 330 amp alt, four kinetik batts, four runs 0 guage , one optima up front. I don't understand , but it only does it when I'm just sitting at idle. When I ride and play it it's fine, .voltage drop no less than 13.3V. Wat do I need to do???? I'm confused do I need more batteries , more runs of 0 guage ????
  4. Hey y'all! Here's the next hot debate! Skar MA-8 versus Sundown SA-8, which is better and why? They look almost identical, the Sundown has a 100-watt RMS rating lead on the Skar, but also has a $20 price lead. Is the extra $20 just for the name? What do y'all think? If it matters, I'm getting the Skar as a Christmas present. It'll be running on a 500-watt monoblock amp, cuz that's what I've got.
  5. Selling my LNIB Sundown Audio SAZ-4500D, I have never powered this amp. From the time I received it about 1.5 months ago til now it has been in the box. I only took it out to look it over and take pics. I purchased this amp from Coleman at Audio Technix and he listed it as LNIB so I am doing the same. No scratches on the amp face at all really does look flawless comes with all the bells and whistles you get when you purchase this new from Sundown (except the Decals I cannot seem to locate those right now). Amp will ship via FedEx w/ Insurance and I am asking $925 Shipped (within the U.S. lower 48) if you are outside of that I will get you a shipping quote from FedEx and FedEx ONLY! I do not use any other method of shipping. I am selling because I decided to go a different route and run more power so instead of hooking this up and diminishing the value by scratching it (I'm Clumsy) I will sell it from now. New amp has already been selected not interested in anything else. NO TRADES $925 FIRM
  6. I am selling the vehicle this was going into, I would rather it not continue to collect dust. It has been stored in my bedroom, except the head unit which was installed for about 6 months. All prices include shipping+insurance(cont US) I will consider all fair offers. If you would like more pictures let me know. (SOLD) Pioneer Deh-p800prs - ($350 shipped) - Installed for around 6 months, only saw about 20 hours of power... No manual, one of the plastic arms that secure the trim ring is broken off, it will still lock on and stay in place. The plastic case for storing the faceplate does not want to stay closed with the faceplate inside. Other than that everything works as it should, the faceplate does not have any scratches or discoloration. Cosmetic - Has typical scratches on case from installation Mechanical - No problems Audison Sr4 - ($350 shipped) - Never installed, has manual Cosmetic - Perfect Mechanical - I did not install it. Sundown 1500D - Revised Heatsink - ($350 shipped) - Never installed, has bass knob and manual Cosmetic - Perfect Mechanical - I did not install it.
  7. These parts where bought for some problematicly built Fi BTL N3s that had issues from the get go. Pretty much drastic coil rub, even after drop in recones coil rub, but that made me aware of the issue and what was happening. Which was the parts being used on them made the whole assemble too tall, and required you to stretch the surrounds about 1/2 inch down to glue the surround to the basket landing which ended up making the nice half roll surround somewhat flattened out, and caused the woofer cone to only travel so far prior to the surround restricting it and pulling the coil back unevenly. Pretty crappy ordeal considering each woofer was $750, plus shipping, and only had about 21-25mm MAX linear excursion on such a high strength motor. There are a few ways to fix this problem on the 12inch models, some easier then others, but I took the beastly method at fixing the issue. So just a before and after pic, parts are just stuck together. Baskets removed. New baskets on. Gluing the collar, and then the spiders. Gluing and clamping the outer edges of the spider packs. Spider packs glued up. Gluing coil/spider assembly. One glued and clamped, time to start with the 2nd spider pack. The second spider pack glued down. The speaker terminals being used. Top wire is knukonceptz kolossus 4awg (slightly over sized compared to a real 4awg wire) had to trim a little bit of wire for it to fit. Bottom wire is old Stinger iirc 6awg, fits perfect with no trimming. soldering the tinsel leads to the terminals. Getting ready to glue the surrounds to the surround landings. Anyone interested in the finished pics of them sitting next to some Digital Design 9512's I recently reconed???
  8. just testing the waters, ill be doing a 1 18" setup soon in my blazer, but need a sub. D2 or D4 and atleast 1500W RMS let me know what ya got!
  9. The max dimensions for my vehicle have been reported as 16hx33wx34d. This is my trunk. I'd like to tune the box to about 32-33hZ. The specs of the sub: Fs: 33.4Hz Re: 1.8 Qms: 7.3 Qes: 0.5 Qts: 0.5 Cms: 64.2 uM/N Mms: 352.8g BL: 15.8 N/A Vas: 57.2L Sens: 87.6 1W/1m Le: 1.9 RMS: 1500 watts
  10. Alright im about to build a 4th order for my jeep today. The max dem are 24x42x20, This gives me roughly 5.5 ported tuned to 44hz and 2.25 sealed, doing a slow port up, with about 111 sq in of port. Now one of my questions is would a full sheet and a half be enough to make this box? I did the math in my head and i believe i have just enough wood to make it. If not i have a few small pieces of mdf i can part with. Im hoping for a bandwidth around the mid 20's and the mid 40's anywhere close to that will be fine, as long as it will be able to play 23hz at the minimum only cause i dig few low end songs. The equipment is a single sundown zv3 with ns softparts, will be powered by 2 apsm 1500s at 2 ohm strapped. Goal is more of a decent bandwidth and more musical with the capabilities of digging deep in the low end with efficiency and maintaining a tight punch. Ive built a few 4th orders, this will be my first for my own personal use.
  11. I like any people have a car with rear seats that don't fold down. Does anyone have any advice or can anyone share what they have done to make the bass louder in the cab of their car?
  12. Time for build #3 on the Maxima. Equipment are as follows: 2 Sundown Nightshade V2 15s with zv3 spiders 2 Sundown SAZ 2500s Pioneer AVH3200DVD 2 XS Power D3100s 1 Optima Yellow Top 2 Runs of Stinger+Knuconceptz 0 Gauge 2 Rockford Fosgate T600.4s 6 Rockford Fosgate P1653 6 Rockford Fosgate P1652 Components 2 Pairs of Rockford Fosgate Punch Tweets 2 Rockford Fosgate Punch 4" Speakers Excessive Amperage 200 Amp Alternator Viper 350 Plus Security In addition: Re-weld Lift Supports, various mods to trunk, hoping for a 150+ out the trunk. Box will be somewhere along the lines of 6.25 cubes @ 33 hz with 100 sq inches of port more or less. Gonna fabricate it and make everything sexy, progress will be uploaded as it comes, hope you all care for trunk builds
  13. I just recently ordered a sundown x12, and need some help on a box design. Want it to be tuned low, since all I mainly listen to is decaf. I don't have much space to play with, only a 36"wide, 13"height, 13"depth. Any ideas??
  14. So here is the idea. We got $2500 to spend this includes buying the car. Its kind of a challenge to our selves. Everything had to be purchased retail or used. No stuff at dealer cost. car must do 55's at between 29 to 33hz NOT a Burp setup. I will break it down to each item in a list as we get them and what we paid for each item for the build. Here is the list (1) The Car........................... After searching for about a month we came across the deal of a life time. a 1989 Honda CRX for $275 bucks the thing runs like a top... looks not so much. but it will do. (2) The sub amps.................Got 1 of four Shark 2500's for $60 used. still need 3 more. (3) The subs.........................Picked up 2 Eminent audio 1k 15's with burnt leads for $150 Repair for the leads is about $25 (4) The interior speakers...... (5) The Interior amp/amps....Execution Audio 60.4 $99 retail (6) Wood..............................4 Sheets of 12 ply birch @ $32 a sheet = $128 (7) Batterys.......................... ( Charging........................Singer 370 alt $549 (9) Wire................................ (10) Head Unit...................... (11) misc.............................. This will Be a wall type build have not decided if going to do a flat ported wall or a fourth order yet. leaning more two the fourth as of right now. So comment away
  15. I have a 1993 Chevrolet Camaro that a customer wanted to put a little bump in... Install includes: Pioneer DEH-X7500S Sundown SA-8 v1.5 Old Rockford Fosgate 300w mono Box by me Soon to come some door speakers... Now here's some pics...
  16. Managed somehow some way to pull off a sixth order in my jeep containing TWO Zv4 18s on a CT Sounds 7000.1 Just a little background on me, used to have a few different enclosures playing around with some 12" JL W6's Some of yall may have seen my ported box tuned to ~15 hz, The 4th order tuned to 38, The "Upside Down" ported enclosure, and a few different ported boxes at various tuning's. http://www.youtube.com/kessel921 Gonna start with two photos to make sure everything gets uploaded correctly
  17. Hello, i built my system in December/January and thought that i would put some pictures up of it. The system consist of: 1 Sundown Audio Zv4 15" 2 Power Acoustik Bamf 5500/1D linked 1 Power Acoustik Bamf 1600/4 Ground Zero gzhc 16x 6.5inch 2 way speakers in front and rear dors 1 Optima yellow top 55a in the front 2 Optima yellow top 75a in the back Pioneer avh x7500bt head unit I have a 120a alternator that i need to replace my current 90a with, and i also want to get some sundown amps in the future when there is money for that im still messing with the settings so some wires at the amps still need to get cleaned.
  18. I used to have a 2012 VW Passat, but I got married and my wife let it slip that she has always wanted a SUV. So I ripped the system out and traded the 2012 in on a 2014 VW Tiguan and bought myself a 2001 Passat Sportwagen. So far I have put coil-overs on it and installed the system from the 2012 Passat. More to come, but slowly. Alpine ICS-X7HD, Sundown SA-6.5CS SSA 15" XCON DC Audio 5.0k, Incriminator Audio IA6.4 I am going to move the Sundowns to the rear doors as soon as I get another tweeter in from Tantric Audio. I was stooooooopid and blew one. The Tantric HD components will be up front as they sound better to me. I also have a XS Power XP3000 behind the amps. I'll have to get a picture the next time I lower the amp rack.
  19. I just installed my sundown zv4 15 to my Hifonics 2000 amp down to 1 ohm. When I play my songs and turn it up the amp cuts out and the subwoofer bottoms out at a very low level. I'm not an idiot and turn the gain all the way up it's almost halfway up. I'm very confused on what could be wrong
  20. How big of a hole should I cut to invert a sa12 with causing surround tear.
  21. 04 Toyota Seqioua Budget Wall 4 SUNDOWN E15's Since Ive joined this forum ive been fasinated with all the great build logs on here. You might see alot of things in my build that look some what similar as this is my first big build so im just trying what i have seen done. This will be a budget build, It will be a long going build as i will buy everything piece by piece. Im always working on something car audio related so there will be tons of pictures. Current Equipment: Head Unit- Pioneer touch screen navi Components- kicker Wire- 1/0 Knukonceptz with BIG 3 Sub amp- Soundstream Ta1.3000d Components amp- NONE Subs- (x2) Alpine Type R 15's Planned Equipment: Head Unit- Pioneer AppRadio 3 Components- Soundstream Wire- x2 runs 2/0 welding cable Sub amp- Soundstream Ta1.3000d Components Amp- Soundstream Ta4.720 Subs- (x4) Sundown E Series 15's Heres The Car The Enclosure Went back and forth between designs for this box. Its going to be a "C" pillar wall. I finally decided on a design. here it is.
  22. Long time reader, first time poster. I would like to get some suggestions with help designing a box for my boat. My boat is a formula 20' with a cuddy cabin. Amp pushing the sub is a t1000.1 bd. Zapco ag350 pushing a pair of fosgate 6.5 components. My plan is to run 1 sub for right now at 2 ohm. the amp specs at 750 watts rms at 2 ohm. If not enough I will add a second sub box to drop it to 1 ohm which my amp puts out 1000 watts rms at 1 ohm. I will be listening to rap, dubstep, rock and country, so would like to build a box that is pretty universal. The opening to get into cuddy is 25 1/2'' tall and 18'' wide, the spot for the box measures 23'' tall, 20'' wide, and 18'' deep. The box will be on the sides of the boat so if needed I could run aero port along the side of the hull so that it will not be in the way. Open to any and all suggestions for design of this enclosure. It is the same dimensions for both sides of the cuddy were sub placement will be.
  23. I have four sundown zv3 18"s in 17.5 cube box ner with about 270" of port tuned to 33hz. My port is removable and I just cut it down some to raise it to 38hz . The only thing I change is the port, power is still the same . What's the odd's of it gaining some db with raising tuning.???
  24. Thought I would share my personal build. Mainly built for Mwspl adv2 and xtrm 3. Soon i'll be testing some woofers in here to see what ends up being loudest. Custom Z4s and NSV3s first. The whole stack goes between 2 builds + 12 more sheets. Starting the shell: Finished up with sides, the top is 3 layers but the second is brought back a few inches for clearances: Start of the back wall, stacked 10" thick: Here i start and finish up the baffles and get to where I am now with finishing the front port. I took about a week to get to the front port when a new project came up that i will share in another thread!
  25. Okay so I am building a box for a buddy of mine who wants to run a sundown e series V3 8 but wants to use an aero-port instead of the slot ported design that sundown gives since it is going in his extended cab truck and he wants to try fitting it under the seat so he doesn't loose any space. The only problem I am having is calculating what size port to use so that he gets his tuning without any port noise. Can someone please tell me what size port I need to use for a 35hz tuning with a box that is 14in high 19.75in long and 7.5in deep. Any help is greatly appreciated.
